Well, we knew this was going to happen. The 2020 Corvettes have hit the aftermarket already and the price tags are staggering. We’ve seen several cars now up in the 6-figure range. We recently stumbled across this one on Facebook Marketplace located Indiana and it’s one of the most expensive C8’s we’ve seen so far. Omega Auto Sports has their handsome Black on red 3LT coupe priced at $129,899. That’s for a car with a sticker price somewhere in the mid to upper 80’s.
The car offered here is one the best combos out there featuring the Black exterior with the Adrenaline Red interior. It’s got the exposed carbon fiber roof panel, carbon flash mirrors, and bright red calipers. Inside we see the 3LT package with carbon fiber trim. It’s got the Z51 suspension with magnetic ride and the engine appearance package. Put all this together you’ve got one of the best color combos out there. Black on red never goes out of style.
Now, dealers marking up new cars is nothing new. We see it all the time, especially on new Corvette models. It’s simple economics and early Corvette demand almost always outpaces available supply. Plus, history tells us that early adopters are generally willing to pay more early in a product’s life just because they need to have it first. With unprecedented demand for the C8 we knew that the markup would be significant. Throw in the COVID-19 mess and the temporary plant shut down and now you’ve got perfect storm. It’s just hard to justify paying all that extra dough when there are still dealers out there willing to sell at MSRP.
If you’re interested in a C8 Corvette be sure to check out one of our great sponsoring dealers to see what they can do for you. As we always say, do your homework before purchasing your next Corvette.
